Central Synagogue, a Reform congregation in New York with 2,300 families as members, reopened on Monday after being closed for five days for a bed bug fumigation.

A synagogue representative told the Post that only one bed bug was found on the eighth floor of the Community House building, but a decision was made to fumigate the building as a precaution. The sanctuary was not affected, the Post reported.
 
Central Synagogue, designated a New York City Landmark in 1966 and a National Historic Landmark in 1975, is the oldest synagogue in continuous use in New York City and one of the leading Reform congregations in the country.
